The recent Evil Interview Questions thread contained heavy use of spoiler tags and revealed what I think is a bug with the spoiler tag and/or the code tag (or at least an undesired feature).

I use the "Perl-Blue Theme" theme container and have spoiler tags set to "table". So normally spoiler text is in black on a black background and the way to view is to highlight/select the text.

Apparently the spoiler tag does not override the color used for text contained within code tags. And that means that using the table view for spoiler tags is partially broken since any code contained within spoiler tags will be visible (just on a black ground instead of the grey background common to the "Perl-Blue Theme").

Anyway, I thought I would mention it.

In reply to Spoiler tag table view is partially broken because embedded code tags are not hidden by Argel

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
